Date 2015/3/10 6:30:28 | Topic: Company News

WANdisco, a provider of continuous-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data, has announced that it has accepted the invitation to join the Open Data Platform (ODP) Initiative -- a shared industry effort to promote and advance the state of Apache Hadoop® and Big Data technologies for the enterprise.
ODP's mission is to accelerate the delivery of Big Data solutions by providing a well-defined core platform ('ODP Core') that enables its users to avoid vendor lock-in. The ODP Core is not a Hadoop distribution, it's the kernel over which the industry can build enterprise-class Apache Hadoop® distributions that simplifies the development of interoperable technologies, enabling Big Data solutions to flourish atop a common core platform. Now, WANdisco's patented replication technology will be available to global enterprises running mission critical big data applications built on the ODP Core.

"The members of ODP are excited to partner with WANdisco as the newest gold member of ODP. We are incredibly impressed with WANdisco's patented technology, as well as their staff of senior core Apache Hadoop committers, some of whom were among the original architects and developers of Hadoop," said the members of the ODP. "We believe that enterprise users of the ODP Core will benefit immeasurably from WANdisco's participation."

"I am delighted that WANdisco has been invited to participate in the ODP Initiative with some of the largest players in the industry," said David Richards, WANdisco Co-Founder and CEO. "This is clear recognition of the value our patented technology brings to mission critical Hadoop big data deployments, as well as our commitment to software based on open standards that give customers a choice, instead of locking them in to a proprietary platform."

"By joining the Open Data Platform, WANdisco is affirming its commitment to providing enterprise Hadoop practitioners maximum choice and compatibility when it comes to the technologies and vendor solutions that make up the emerging Big Data stack," said Jeff Kelly, Principal Analyst at Wikibon. "The company's Hadoop offerings, focused on continuous availability and active-active data replication, are crucial elements to speeding Hadoop enterprise adoption, which is the ODP's overarching mission."
